Editor's Pick: Lancome Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream Review
Lancôme’s skin care portfolio features a luxurious assortment of sought-after, aesthetically-pleasing products extending from replenishing oils and cooling eye gels to radiance masks and tinted moisturizers. For almost 100 years, Lancôme has been at the forefront of luxury beauty—and for good reason. New to their Absolue collection is a skin-revitalizing anti-aging cream that we think puts others to shame. We received a complimentary sample of the Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream thanks to our friends over at Lancôme, and we put it to the test. Read on for our review of Lancôme Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream.
What Is the Lancôme Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream?
The Absolue collection dates back to 1965 when it was first created. The range has stood the test of time thanks to the revitalizing power of the rose. But not just any rose. The rose extracts featured in the Absolue range were created through a complex hybridization process. Of the thousands of species produced, only one rose was chosen. This rare Lancôme rose, with resilient qualities, is where the Grand Rose Extracts—found in the Absolue collection of products—is sourced. Lancôme’s Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream contains Grand Rose Extracts and boasts a rich texture that can envelop the skin in moisture.
What Does the Lancôme Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream Do?
The Grand Rose Extracts in this formula are a concentrate of three rose extracts obtained by avant-garde technology. The formula can revitalize the skin with moisture, firmness, and plumpness. With continued use, expect to see a decreased appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It in its place? Smoother, more radiant-looking skin. Thanks to the formula’s rich texture, your skin will look dewy and nurtured.
The Lancôme Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream Review
Winter’s cold temperatures and whipping winds haven’t exactly been kind to my skin. I find myself staring back at a complexion that’s dry, dull, and lackluster, much of which I blame on the elements. But it’s not just the change of seasons causing this less-than-ideal skin situation. My skin care products play a role as well, especially my moisturizer. The formula I had been using religiously simply wasn’t thick or rich enough to really envelope my skin with hydration and to help defend it from hydration loss.
So instead of picking up my go-to lightweight moisturizer, I decided to give a rich cream a try, specifically the Lancôme Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream. This indulgent moisturizing cream has a rich texture (go figure) but luckily it absorbed into my skin with ease and didn’t make my skin feel heavy. In fact, it delivered just the right amount of hydration to plump the look of my skin with a subtle dewiness that caught the light gently.
How to Use the Lancôme Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream
Apply the cream on to clean face and neck skin. Rub it in gently and allow it to absorb.
